CIBSE Signs Licence Agreement With NABERS UK

CIBSE Signs Licence Agreement With NABERS UK
03 April 2024 | Updated 05 April 2024

After parting with the Building Research Establishment in 2023, NABERS has appointed CIBSE as its UK scheme administrator.

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) is one of the founding members of the NABERS UK Steering Committee and will soon add the scheme to its roster of certifications, professional training and standards development.

NABERS, the Australian national building performance rating system, entered the UK market in 2020, administered by The Building Research Establishment (BRE). The UK scheme has nearly 150 new and refurbished office buildings setting NABERS UK Design for Performance targets, representing a significant portion of UK office developments.

CIBSE Chief Executive, Ruth Carter said: “We are delighted that CIBSE is now overseeing the administration of NABERS UK. This strategic move aligns with our commitment to advancing energy efficiency in the built environment. NABERS UK plays a crucial role in bridging the performance gap and enhancing transparency. We are excited to contribute to the continued success and impact of NABERS UK.”

NABERS Director, Carlos Flores added, “We are thrilled to announce CIBSE as the new NABERS UK Scheme Administrator. CIBSE has an illustrious history of leadership in building sustainability and decarbonisation, and an unmatched track record in certification and the development of technical standards. Buildings in the UK can and should lead the world in tackling the climate crisis, and we are excited about the role NABERS UK can play with an organisation of CIBSE’s calibre at the helm.” 

CIBSE is hosting a free webinar to discuss the transition on 30 April 2024 - register here
